is Red Cross Month
Each year, the President of the United States proclaims the month of March as “Red Cross Month,” to honor the lifesaving work the organization does throughout the year. Show your support and celebrate with us by donating blood and asking a friend to do the same.
The Cottonwood Blood Drive is scheduled for March 18th at the Cottonwood Community Hall; call Brenda Kaschmitter or Cheri Holthaus at 962-3251 to schedule an appointment.
The Red Cross helps save lives each day by managing nearly half of the nation's blood supply. In the United States, every two seconds someone needs blood. It must readily available for accident victims, people undergoing routine surgeries, people with rare blood disorders, and premature babies.
Any healthy person age 17 (age 16 with signed parental consent) or older and weighing at least 110 pounds may be eligible to donate blood. Valid identification is required for all donations.
